Was this show written for my child?

My 2 year old LOVES this show. They literally took all of her favorite household objects and turned them into characters that sing and dance around. I can see how kids who are school age might not really be engaged, but this show is definitely perfect for my toddler. We came across ot by accident, but I'm glad we did.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (6 ):

Although it's hard to get warm fuzzies from watching talking household objects than from watching charming, furry puppets or cute animated animals, the concepts this series teaches are certainly valuable. They contribute to preschoolers' vocabulary and make them aware of the world around them. The familiarity of these everyday objects also helps viewers relate them to their own surroundings.

Still, the characters in A Little Curious just aren't as charming or engaging as many of the favorites you'd find on the Disney Channel or Noggin, for example. Kids get more engaged in what they're learning onscreen when they develop a soft spot for an adorable character or are made to feel like they're part of the action, and this show keeps viewers at arm's length because the characters are a bit more impersonal.
